Cleaning the cot bed
Clean the mattress of the cot with nursery cleaning product and wipe or towel. Then dry it with a new clean towel or cloth.

Babies explore their world with their toys in their mouth. It is important to sanitize the nursery toys daily. Stuffed toys can be easily washed out in the washing machine. Other nursery toys can be sanitized with nursery cleaning products, warm water and towels. Dry them out again with a clean towel or cloth.
Babies tend to spend a lot of time on the floor. They crawl around the room.
So, regular cleaning of the floor is vital. Clean the floor with mild floor cleaner and mop it thoroughly.
If you have carpeted wall to-wall of your nursery, then it's virtually impossible not to have dust. Nursery carpets look clean but secretly it gets dusty. It can cause allergies, so you may need to vacuum it at least twice a week. Make sure the dust is thoroughly taken off.
Our nursery rooms can sometimes be full of toys, books, and many other items. Clutter begins to appear most prominently when we own too much stuff. Conversely, the fewer items we own, the easier it is to keep clutter at a minimum. The first (and most important) step in keeping your nursery room clutter-free is to remove the excessive possessions that are stealing your time and energy. Keep all toys and other essentials in a cupboard or in a separate storage(s).
